Bug Description

When trying to watch TV on totem over DVB -dongle i'm asked to install this plugin: "private/teletext-decoder". Search for the plugin ends with no result, totem won't play TV if I break off the popup either and try to start in spite of the apparently missing plugin. I have installed several additional packages as advised from the forums to enhance TV reception but it doesn't work with totem up to now. With xine-player as alternative plugin (advised by wiki, codecs) I might start TV only once to watch it. no further attempt will work out. Thanks for scrutinising Jo

Same plugin search here with lucid while playing dvb-t streams recorded with kaffeine.

VLC does play the video without any message (and its also possible to switch the subtitle on (Right-click -> Video -> Subtitle).)

Totem 2.32.0 in Ubuntu 10.10 complains that the plugin private/teletext decoder could not be found,
but then it plays the file.

A weird workaround is to uninstall the gnome-codec-install: it checks for the missing codec.

Ubuntu 11.04 is affected too

As seemingly fixed for the higher-level package Elisa/Movida in bug #415031and proposed at end of duplicate bug #553713, it seems simply ignoring this particular plugin would suffice as a fix. That wouldn't need any GUI-change but would need to be reverted if a plugin for this is released in the future. I guess a more general fix like GUI with "Don't ask again" or configuration to allow never searching for plugins would further delay this issue.

I'm using libgstreamer0.10.36-1ubuntu1 and totem3.0.1-0ubuntu21.1 on Ubuntu 12.04, x86_64. As I don't have gnome-codec-install the workaround in post #6 about uninstalling that is not applicable. In my case the problem is just an annoyance, after clicking away the dialog about missing plugin I can still watch and hear the DVB-recorded file.
